A process transforms images/photographs of pattern (rugs, tile work, etc) into cartoonish, gloopy, painterly abstraction.  There are 300, each will only be printed once.

Project description:
This video amalgamates every single frame from the first 26 seasons of The Simpsons (1989-2015, 574 episodes, 17.7M frames).  The composition includes algorithmically mixed audio and combines both standard & high definition seasons. Reconsidering a promise to stop making these types of pieces (begun in 1997), the project belongs to a large suite of works (including murals, prints, books & video) reorganizing and manipulating episodes of The Simpsons - as data - in related, but varied ways.  The overall project represents the synthesis and unification of my amalgamation work (Playboys, Homes, etc.) with my color-averaged frame work (Titanic, EAO, etc). By varying parameters, a single software process produces compositions capable of a huge breadth (all the ways) of data representation.  Most importantly, it maps a contiguous space inhabited by these previously distinct styles. We're currently exploring these frames and audio tracks with deep networks...more to come.

These volumes present color information for every single episode from the first 26 seasons of The Simpsons (1989-2015, 574 episodes, 17.7M frames).  Each page is a single episode, in a unique data representation, produced by a software process with varied input parameters. This project belongs to a large suite of works (including murals, prints, books & video) reorganizing and manipulating episodes of The Simpsons - as data - in related, but varied ways.  The overall project represents the synthesis and unification of my amalgamation work (Playboys, Homes, etc.) with my color-averaged frame work (Titanic, EAO, etc).

This print amalgamates every single "couch gag" from the first 26 seasons of The Simpsons.

These murals present color information for every single episode from the first 26 seasons of The Simpsons (1989-2015, 574 episodes, 17.7M frames).  Each episode is a radiating concentric rectangle and is arranged in sequence by season.  Color shift over the entire mural is based on many factors, particulalrly the switch to high definition in later seasons.  The pieces belong to a large suite of works (including murals, prints, books & video) reorganizing and manipulating episodes of The Simpsons - as data - in related, but varied ways.  The overall project represents the synthesis and unification of my amalgamation work (Playboys, Homes, etc.) with my color-averaged frame work (Titanic, EAO, etc).
